Chi Tan T'ang (Egg Drop Soup)
I love this soup. I think it will become a lunchtime staple for me and it's so low calorie! I started out using some of the adaptations suggested in the reviews, mainly cutting down the amount of vinegar. I am not a vinegar lover, and I used cider vinegar because it is all I had. Originally I used 1 tbsp. of soy sauce and 1 tbsp of cider vinegar. I later added the extra tbsp. of soy because it needed it. The soup was very salty, so I added another 3/4 cup of water. It was still very salty so I added more cider vinegar until I felt it tasted very good. If you don't want the soup to be overly salty DON'T BE AFRAID OF VINEGAR. The vinegar helps cut through the saltiness of the bouillion and soy sauce and I thought the cider vinegar added a nice balance to the soup. I ended up using 2 1/2 tbsp of cider vinegar to balance out the other flavors in the soup, almost as much as the recipe originally called for. I think the other 1/2 tbsp. would have added, I just don't like vinegar. As a finishing touch I also added a pinch of ginger.

Cream Cheese Brownies III
This recipe best. They weren't at all as Cream Cheesy as I wanted them to be, and personally I thought they were unnecessarily messy (You have to have a bowl for the chocolate, one for the cream cheese, one for the batter). I made it basically according to the directions with a few necessary substitutions because I was snowed in during a blizzard and didn't have all the ingredients :D. That was simply using cocoa powder with oil and sugar for the melted chocolate and 1/4 cup of applesauce for one egg because I ran out. I also didn't have nuts. I'm currently eating one of these brownies with extra cream cheese on the side because you can't taste the cream cheese at all. There are simply much easier recipes for brownies just as good out there, and you can add cream cheese to those if you want.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
This recipe is perfect as it is written. I started out making the suggested changes of 1 pkg of cream cheese and half the butter with 2 cups of confectioner's sugar-- but it was sickeningly sweet and I didn't think it was as cream-cheesy as I would like so I went ahead and added the rest of the cream cheese and butter and it turned out great! I used it on the Lite Carrot Cake recipe on this site and I had lots of leftover frosting. You could easily to a layer cake with it. But definitely keep the recipe as it is written, it's fantastic.
